Open Quote This school is infamous for bullying. The school doesn't hold any of the students accountable. They rather sweep it under the rug, and continue to carry an act like the school is amazing! The kids get away with a lot! When a child brings a knife on a bus because he is getting bullied what does this tell you. And this is an elementary school! Some of the teachers are awesome! But as a parent I would stay away from this school, my review isn't biased! Ask parents, real parents that their child has been in incident see what they say! The assistant principal is great at making you feel like you're crazy, truly a car salesman will tell whatever you want to hear! My child has learned about ten swear words in one day just in the playground in the morning while waiting for the bell to ring! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
